What do we do? 

The school values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils.  We endeavour to provide the best learning opportunities for each pupil, in order to help them achieve their very best.  Special Educational Needs are identified early and the school works closely to plan a curriculum to meet the children’s needs, this starts in the classroom but may also involve additional interventions to support a pupil’s needs. 

There is a SEN team led by the SENCo who are here to provide additional support in school to those pupils who may require it.  If necessary, we involve outside agencies or further specialist advice and support in order to provide the best outcomes for our pupil’s.

We work in partnership with the children, parents, carers, specialists and governors to provide the correct support.
